My Favorite Comfort Food
There’s food, the one we eat when we are hungry and need to have something nutritious, and then there’s comfort food. Comfort food is what you eat when you feel sad or upset and need something to cheer you up. Although experts say it’s not such a good habit, truth is I don’t know a single person who doesn’t have a favorite food they take to indulge themselves when they are down.
For me, it’s ice-cream. I know, I’m not exactly the out-of-the-box type, but sweet, colorful, tasty ice-cream always makes me feel better. It’s probably because of all the sugar they put in it, but I also think it’s because I have such great memories associated with it.
I used to take walks with my dad when I was a little girl and he would take me to this ice-cream parlor near our house where the owner was really nice and always served an especially big scoop on my cone. Of course, I would never finish it off and it would melt all the way along my arm, something that didn’t make my mom very happy, but for me it was heaven.
I also have wonderful memories of going for ice-cream with my husband when we started going out. We used to meet at different ice-cream parlors every week and talk about which ice-cream was better and why. We finally became real ice-cream sommeliers!
So nowadays, every time I have a scoop of ice-cream I am filled with joy. It’s not only delicious and pretty, but it also makes me remember of many good times I’ve had in my life.
